New Scotch whisky launched in SA

Cape Town-based premium drinks company Truman & Orange is behind the launch of Bannerman’s Finest Blended Scotch Whisky – a welcome innovation in the largest spirits category in SA, and one dominated by multinational companies.

Bannerman’s Finest Scotch Whisky is a Speyside-style Scotch Whisky, produced and blended in Scotland, just outside Edinburgh.  Bannerman’s is made using older, more complex malt whiskies, which give it a bolder, more complex flavour than other blends and help create its exceptionally long, smooth finish. 

Bannerman’s is made using a uniquely slow distillation process which ensures longer contact with the copper still, creating its beautifully fruity flavours.  Aged in oak casks, Bannerman’s maturation uses a high proportion of sweet Spanish sherry casks to create an unusually smooth, rich character.

Available at all good liquor stores. For more information visit:
